Just as the spring perennials are finishing up in the Dry Border and the Buddleias are setting their bloom, the massive leaves of Crambe cordifolia unfold from a huge purple rootstock. Soon, clouds of tiny white flowers appear on 8-foot stems. The effect is one of a giant baby's breath. The flowers are honeyed at first and become less sweet with age.
